Annual Food Drive at City Facilities

From Monday, Nov. 18 to Friday, Nov. 29 the City is holding its annual food drive to collect non-perishable food items in support of the Community Food Sharing Association (CFSA).

This year, City Council approved a $15,000 donation to the CFSA, and staff are collecting food items at city facilities instead of going door to door.

Non-perishable food donations are being collected at City Hall, and at the following community centres: H.G.R. Mews, Paul Reynolds, Kenmount Terrace, Southlands, Kilbride and Shea Heights.

The CFSA stocks food banks throughout the province; commonly needed items include:

  • Canned Soup & Stew                
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Beans
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Dried Pasta, Noodles & Rice
  • Pasta Sauce
  • Canned Meat & Fish
  • Beans & Legumes
  • Canned Vegetables & Fruit
  • Canned/Powdered Milk
  • Breakfast Cereal
  • Baking Supplies

Since the City of St. John's first food drive in 2014, residents have donated approximately 500,000 pounds of non-perishable food to the Community Food Sharing Association.
